Environmental experts: "poison plastic," the damage worse than waste oil – toxic plastic, recycled – plastics industry
HC plastic mesh News: In the breakfast own it can often be steaming hot fried fritters, soybean curd, steamed buns, and were put in plastic bag and handed it the hands of customers; in some small restaurants, soup is often peremptorily children poured into a plastic bag packaging away … … “These plastic bags, raw materials are likely to be” toxic “plastic granules.” In response, the State Environmental protection Product Quality Supervision and Inspection Center Distinguished experts in the Golden Lion said Dong.
Experts say “At present many areas of waste plastics recycling industry are in a regulatory gap, and many processed plastic granules of the enterprise itself is not illegal, and then expect to be legitimate applications of these materials is clearly unrealistic. Currently on the market of plastic particles are widely applied, many of which be processed into a common ultra-thin plastic bags. There are also producing plastic lunch boxes, disposable plastic cups, Toy , Basins and other plastic products, illegal enterprise, the raw materials used are “toxic” plastic particles. ”
Thin plastic garbage bags over transfiguration
Previously, directors had the Golden Lion “poison” the application of plastic particles had in-depth investigation, has been to Yingkou and other places unannounced visits, found that ultra-thin plastic bags, raw materials shall be processed out of a number of small workshops dark gray plastic granules, Adds after the mother into the different colors, will Zaochu blue, white, black, red and other one-time plastic bags of different colors, “the market is used in such bags.”
‘s Survey found that some large-scale supermarkets, shopping malls and shopping centers can implement the basic provisions of the national limit plastic bag, paid to provide customers with environmentally friendly plastic bags, but in some integrated bazaars and street shops scattered stalls, plastic limit order is ineffective, the market is full of a variety of ultra-thin plastic bags to the customer free of charge. “At the beginning of the plastic bag market Guande Yan, and now few people are managing.” A selling point for businesses face told reporters that her bags wholesale from other markets, “we are a small business , bags are too expensive, only two or three cents a thin plastic bag. “interviews some of the business, also said the reason they provide plastic bags to customers free of charge, is forced. Who sells seafood business, said, “We are not willing to provide free plastic bags, but the customer is not willing to spend money on bags, we can not let customers use the right hand!”
Reporter visited the Dalian train station is located near a number of wholesale department and firms, found that almost every sale of cheap plastic products, plastic basin, lunch boxes, bottles, cups, rice bowls and other plastic products, work on rough, no marks, some plastic bottle is very thin, hand-pinch on the deformation, and these plastics have an acrid smell of children.
A shopkeeper quietly told reporters: “cheap, almost all of plastic products Renewable materials , Those who had been discarded plastic waste into recycled materials processed on these plastic products inappropriate for home use, will be deformation encountered in hot water, a sun there an odor, a lot of businesses engaged in marketing are often used as gifts. “The owner said,” processing plastic products and recycled materials with the original materials as much as several thousand dollars per ton of difference, so to buy more cheap plastic products factory plastic particles. ”
Experts say “According to state regulations, waste plastics can be recycled, but technically demanding. Prior to that, I have done investigation and analysis of the market for Food Packaging, plastic products, some of which existed in the source of the problem of raw materials, some do not meet the requirements of food packaging waste, recycled materials. ”
Recycled plastic Can not be used for food packaging
Dong Lion said that the recycled plastic product application, the state has clearly defined, can not directly be used to make contact with food items, can only do garbage bags, a chair for a class of products, all Waste plastic Food packaging materials do not. Because the plastic used for food packaging has stringent standards, must be non-toxic, generally Polyethylene , Polypropylene, and melamine and other raw materials, these materials are not required to join in the processing of chemical additives, relatively stable single component, so even if used for holding hot food or water will not cause harmful reactions. Good raw material from a special plastic petrochemical plant, meet the health requirements.
Even so, even under the food-grade and industrial grade to select a different raw materials, industrial raw materials can not be used in the production of food grade products. As for those dirty waste plastic products, some also see plastic melting of impurities, but can not be used to make food-grade plastic products. But in the actual manipulation, some producers and dealers of plastic raw materials known to be spam, but overseas sales, without any identification instructions.
Not only concern the production of raw materials, some of the factory production environment is very health. “At present, plastic packaging for food market access in practice QS certification, those dark dens dirty production environment simply can not meet the sanitary requirements of food packaging, but some vendors only from a profit perspective, set the expense of social responsibility, mass production of consumer products harmful to health. “Dong Lion said,” to create a situation, the relevant functional departments and inadequate supervision of investigation and punishment. ”
“Waste plastic composition contains a large number of spoilage bacteria and other harmful chemicals. Some people think that these plastics in the production process after a high temperature melting, high temperature sterilization effect there, but in fact it is our understanding misunderstanding. ”
